Hello darlings,

It’s literally been a month since I last chatter with you, but don’t lose faith in me just yet! This past month was kinda rough, but you know what else? It was also kinda awesome too! This week alone had some pretty rad developments in the geeky universe in which I reside, and as such, I will get all in my feelings about them below.  Continue reading

Apocalypse Has Its Mutants, Korra’s (Temporarily) Back, and Penny’s Been Pushed — Nerd Girl Corner

I’m back, ladies and gents. Yes, I know it’s been almost a month since I last wrote to you and yes, I feel deeply sorry about it. I’m already starting the year off bad, but I promise you — it was not done in vain. I’ve got some pretty exciting projects in the wings, one of which will definitely rock the socks of some of your readers. But, let’s move on to tonight’s post, shall we?

As the title suggests, the upcoming X-Men flick, X-Men: Apocalypse has cast the actors who will play the younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm. If you can recall, about a month ago, Latino-Review got its hands on the list of Hollywood yougins testing for the spot and the results are as follows: Continue reading

via: vimeo

‘Ello, friends!

It’s the second day into the New Year and I’m quite excited to see what 2015 has in store for me and my blog. And while I’m slowly lining up the next steps I’ll need to take in order to get closer to my goals (whatever they may be at the moment) and further myself in this world, I have to say that 2014 was filled with quite a few golden nuggets: Continue reading

Legend of Korra Series Finale, Episode 12: “Day of Colossus” and Episode 13: “The Last Stand” Post-Cap — Nerd Girl Corner

Hey there, Korra Nation! As many of you know, The Legend of Korra Book 4: Balance aired its finale episodes, “Day of Colossus” and “The Last Stand” on December 19th. As promised, I’ve written a recap (which can be found on Black Girl Nerds) in case you haven’t checked it out yet, but now it’s time for a new post-cap!

If you don’t know what a “post-cap” is by now, then it’s a damn shame and quite frankly, you don’t need to be reading this. But, if you’re still clueless — at the very end, no less — a “post-cap” is part recap, part review, and all the feels that one may have after watching an episode (and writing a full-blown recap). Got it? Cool.

I apologize for not posting this final Korra post-cap sooner. I’d been so engrossed in other things and my own feelings, but I promised to have it up before the end of the year, and by goodness, I’m holding fast to that promise.

Now let’s dig into The Legend of Korra Book 4 Balance, Chapter 12, “Day of Colossus” and Chapter 13: “The Last Stand”:

If you don’t know what a “post-cap” is by now, then it’s a damn shame. But for refreshing purposes, it’s my make-believe term that by definition is part summation, part review, and tons of thoughts and feelings that one may have after watching an episode (and writing a full-blown recap). Got it? Cool.

Now let’s dig into The Legend of Korra Book 4 Balance, Chapter 11, “Kuvira’s Gambit”:

By now, you guys should know what a “post-cap” is.

I know I could as easily call my post-cap a “review,” but I like to do things my way. Got it? Good.

So just what is a “post-cap”? Well, it’s a make-believe term I created that by definition is mixed of thoughts, feelings, etc. that one may have after reading (in my case, writing) a recap. Hence, “post-cap”. I know I could as easily call my post-cap a “review,” but I like to do things my way. Got it? Good.
